One of the riper, more exotic wines of the vintage, this gushes with black currant, fig and blackberry fruit, all of which has melded together and is starting to show a corrupt edge, while the sweet bacon, spice, mesquite and clove-studded blood orange notes fill out the background. The long, very juicy finish is multilayered and supported by fresh acidity.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2027. 6,250 cases made. -JM

The 1998 Cuvee Reservee requires another 2-3 years of cellaring. It is an old style, full-bodied effort revealing notes of roasted meats, beef blood, herbes de Provence, kirsch liqueur, sandalwood, and spice. Rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic, super-pure and dense, this gorgeous offering is the finest Cuvee Reservee produced since 1990.
